Aluminium honeycomb is one of the most widely used high performance honeycomb materials; chosen for its excellent strength to weight ratio (the best of all core materials) and bonding characteristics.
Aluminium honeycomb is used extensively in the motorsport, marine and aerospace industries and increasing now in construction industry where reducing weight whilst maintaining or improving the strength of a composite is of key importance.
In its un-expanded (block) form aluminium honeycomb is also very compact and easy to ship cost effectively and without risk of damage. Un-expanded blocks can be easily expanded into their full sheet form without the need for sophisticated equipment.
Like all core materials aluminium honeycomb is designed to be sandwiched between two skins of material to create a sandwich panel. By creating distance between the two skins and ensuring that these skins cannot move relative to each other great mechanical advantage is gained making for very stiff panels with only minimal increase in weight.
